Hello!

This is my first contribution to the artist corner. It's a song about a game to help you play the game that's in the song.

Any feedback is appreciated.

    Im no musician, but I know what I like.

    I enjoyed the lyrics

    The chorus, not so much. It actually felt kinda preachy.

    (girl with pigtails needs more screen time)

    The video was pretty good, I guess. Well edited.

    Not too big on the music.

    As someone that played Diablo II continuously for about two years, I can say that I enjoyed the concept for a Diablo themed music video immensely. I second that we need much more girl/pigtail action.

    My main problem with the music video was the lyrics. Because these sort of nerdcore songs that are themed around something specifically gain most of their appeal from having clever lyrics, it seems that it would be boonful that they do not repeat. I would recommend having very little repetition of the lyrics and making more of the Diablo references. Talk about Hammerdins, and Baal runs and the like, because that is really what a Diablo 2 comedy nerdcore music video should be about. It's should be about builds and specific references to the game that only someone well acquainted with it would understand. This is why White and Nerdy was so successful as a song. It didn't really repeat itself and you listened to it for hilarity, not necessarily for musicianship. The name of the song and the chorus seems to sort of be flawed as well because from what I remember in Diablo 2, I never bound a single key. It was mostly about stat allocation and point allocations in the skill trees , not keys.

    Maybe I'm just picking it apart too much.

    That being said, the chorus was insanely catchy, the samples well placed and it was extremely well edited.

    This song helped me realize how much of a nerd I am.
